All five Spice Girls reunited in London yesterday at the opening night of a new musical, Viva Forever, that’s based around their songs. (Hopefully its plot bears no resemblance to that of Spice World.) Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, and Victoria Beckham all gamely posed for a series of photo shoots around the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel … or so you’d think at first. Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that Beckham is attempting to inch away from her four former cohorts in every photo. Click through our slideshow to see what we mean.

“Girls, the trick to looking good in all these pictures is to stand perfectly still and not say a word, even if you notice that I’m sneaking away.”
“Okay, if I can juuuust make it over this railing without ripping my skirt then I’ll be golden … ”
“Em, don’t even think about stepping near my Louboutins in those blue monstrosities.”
“I hope you all realize that I flew all the way from my mansion in L.A. just for this.”
